I watch the western sky
     The sun is sinking
     The geese are flying south
     It sets me thinking

     I did not miss you much
     I did not suffer
     What did not kill me
     Just made me tougher

     I feel the winter come
     His icy sinews,
     Now in the firelight
     The case continues

     Another night in court
     The same old trial
     The same old questions asked
     The same denial

     The shadows closing round
     Like jury members
     I look for answers in
     The fire's embers

     Why was I missing then
     That whole December?
     I give my usual line,
     I don't remember

     Another winter comes
     His icy fingers creep
     Into these bones of mine
     These memories never sleep
     And all these differences
     A cloak I borrow
     We kept our distances
     Why should it follow that
     I must have loved you?

     What is a force that binds the stars?
     I wore this mask to hide my scars
     What is the power that moves the tide?
     Never could find a place to hide

     What moves the earth around the sun?
     What could I do but run and run and run?
     Afraid to love, afraid to fail
     A mast without a sail

     The moon's a fingernail
     And slowly sinking
     Another day begins
     And now I'm thinking

     That this is indifference
     Was my invention
     When everything I did
     Sought your attention

     You were my compass star
     You were my measure
     You were a pirate's map
     Of buried treasure

     If this was all correct
     The last thing I'd expect
     The prosecution rests
     It's time that I confessed
     I must have loved you
     I must have loved you
